The heart of this car is a big block 383 that came out of a 1968 car. It was completely rebuilt last year with a
mildly aggressive camshaft and ported/polished heads. The points ignition has been replaced with electronic
ignition. While the original engine produced 300 HP, I would expect this one is closer to 350-375 HP. The cam
that we chose has a nice lope to it but is not too aggressive. Backed by the original 4-speed transmission
w/pistol grip shifter and original rear-end, the Cuda performs wonderfully. Finished off with a throaty Flowmaster
exhaust, this car turns heads coming, going, or just plain standing still. The engine compartment presents as well
as the outside of the car. The paint under the hood is show quality. The engine was freshly painted when rebuilt.
The air cleaner has been meticulously restored and displays the correct OEM finish. Opting for headers instead of
the original exhaust manifolds, they are ceramic coated with a polished finish.

Obviously, when driving such a beautiful machine, you want it to stop on a dime. Instead of sticking with the
original drums, I decided to hide Wilwood 4 wheel disc brakes behind those gorgeous rally wheels.

For the interior, the carpet was replaced with a more modern ultra plush cute pile, and the seats and dash are
original but in amazing condition with no rips or tears. As far as tunes, the original radio has been replaced
with an Alpine stereo, combined with 6x9 Sony speakers and amplifier.

Things that do not work on the car - the clock. That's it! I never got around to installing a new one since I had
planned to convert the dash over to the rallye gauges as some point.

Original 383/4-speed car. The Cuda badging was added at some point in the past.

Overall, this is one of the cleanest and straightest Cuda's you will find.

'Blood Muscle' auction to sell impressive collection of ill-begotten classic cars

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:31:00 EST

The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on September 12, you stand the chance to buy some of the ultimate muscle cars from the US Marshals in what is being gruesomely nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction.
The grisly moniker was earned because all of the vehicles belonged to the president of a blood testing company who is facing prison time for alleged bribery, according to Hemmings. After all, they are muscle cars bought with actual blood money. The seven-vehicle collection includes some of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, and the original buyer clearly had an eye for rarity.
This cornucopia of V8 power includes a teal 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang, an orange 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible and perhaps most prized of all - a trio of 1969 Yenko Chevys with a Chevelle, Nova and Camaro all represented. From the included photos, all of them look to be in fantastic condition.

SRT belatedly claims Plymouth Prowler as one of its own

Wed, 19 Dec 2012 16:31:00 EST

Before Chrysler had Street and Racing Technology, it had Performance Vehicle Operations. What the two entities have in common, before SRT became its own brand, of course, is that each was created to take Chrysler and Dodge (and Plymouth, before it was unceremoniously killed off) vehicles to the next level of style and performance.
We'll leave the question of whether or not the old Plymouth (and later Chrysler) Prowler was ultimately a stylish, performance-oriented car to you, but the boys and girls currently leading the SRT charge at the Pentastar headquarters are keen to accept the retro-rod into the fold.
According to the automaker, all of SRT's current high-performance models owe a debt of gratitude to the old Prowler, due mostly to that car's use of lightweight bits and pieces and innovative construction techniques. If nothing else, the fact that the Prowler's frame is "the largest machined automotive part in history" is pretty cool. Read all the details here.

'71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible sells for $3.5M [w/video]

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 09:29:00 EST

We're plenty used to seeing classic cars selling for millions of dollars. It's just that they're usually European: Ferraris, Bugattis, Mercedes and the like. There are some rare American exceptions, usually wearing the names Duesenberg or Shelby. But what we have here is the most expensive Chrysler product ever sold at auction.
The vehicle in question is a Plymouth Barracuda - specifically a 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible, chassis #BS27R1B315367 - that Mecum Auctions just sold after eight solid minutes of feverish bidding for a high bid of $3.5 million at its auction in Seattle, Washington. That figure positively eclipses the $2.2 million paid for a strikingly similar Hemi Cuda (chassis #BS27R1B269588) fetched nearly seven years ago in Scottsdale and another that was the first muscle car to break the million-dollar mark in 2002.
